Quick Start

Cost: No charge

Broadcast email messages are those sent by individuals, organizations, and departments within Boston University to a large segment of the University community, such as faculty, staff, students, alumni, and parents. To prevent such mass communications from becoming “spam,” broadcast email must be reviewed and approved according to University policies.


Broadcast email facilitates mass distribution of approved messages to large segments of the BU community (and to non-BU addresses, when applicable).
